MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Waitrose. Yeasty orange tinged nose with spicy notes. The aroma is actually the best thing by far with this one. Great looking peachy orange, almost amber, cloudy body. Would have been a 4 if it wasn’t for the very poor behaviour of the head. Very spritzy mouthfeel which takes the edge off it a little. Flavour is reasonable. Standard tripel fayre really. Slightly citric, more spice and a nice creamy vanilla kick from the alcohol. Finish is initially very dry with further gentle vanilla alcohol. Eventually ending up a little sticky and acrid. Not a bad tripel, I just can’t get excited about it.
